According to the New Haven 1916 "Official List of Stations" I have in my collection, Aquidneck, RI was 3.90 miles from Newport Wharf, and was the first station on the line. The next station listed is Middletown, at 4.74 miles from Newport.

I looked at the New Haven Valuation maps, and I could not find the flag stop either, BUT what I could find the flag stop was between Mileposts 11 & 12, on the line.
Milepost 11 is Portsmouth, RI, and milepost 12 is Coreys Lane, if you put in your search engine
History of the Newport Line, Newport RI, a History should come up when the Old Colony RR owned the line. I hope this is of some help, Pat.
Pa t - I think you're looking in the wrong place - when measuring from Newport, Portsmouth is listed at 9.47 miles, and Corey's Lane is at 8.40. Since Aquidneck is listed at 3.90, you're about 4-1/2 miles away.
